jungleGROUP TO MAKE U.S. LIVE DEBUT THIS MARCH
Including Two Sold Out Shows in New York

UK based, breakout act Jungle have premiered the first track from their upcoming full-length album, due out on XL Recordings this summer.
The song called “Busy Earnin’” is available now for streaming

“Busy Earnin’” will be available for purchase at all digital retailers starting today and vinyl next month. The collective is set to unveil their live performance with a series of debut U.S. shows kicking off with two SOLD OUT shows in New York starting March 8 at Rough Trade and then March 9 at Mercury Lounge. The band will then head to SXSW and after that Los Angeles (full list of dates below).

“Jungle” can be described as a complex mixture of things and the London based collective have claimed the moniker because their music conveys just that. Combining what The Guardian notes as “tribal in terms of rhythm but postpunk in sensibility” and Brooklyn Vegan proclaims has “a real vintage-ness here, recalling the period of funk and soul just as those genres started transitioning into disco,” Jungle has quickly perked the curiosity of media across the globe.

JUNGLE upcoming tour dates:
3/8 Brooklyn, NY Rough Trade NYC (SOLD OUT)
3/9 New York, NY Mercury Lounge (SOLD OUT)
3/11 Austin, TX Spotify House
3/12-3/15 Austin, TX SXSW
3/17 Los Angeles, CA The Echo

DeeKay Jones – Jones Comin’ Down (Preview) (incl. Hercules & Love Affair vs. Haze Factory Remix)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2013 by E.N.

DeeKay Jones - Jones Comin' DownRelease Date: Nov 25th 2013
For its seventh release Shaddock unearths a genre-defining piece of music overlooked by even the most thorough of crate diggers, backed by a storming Hercules & Love Affair remix.

‘New York, New York’ by DeeKay Jones, is an electrifying piece of hypnotic electric-disco-wave, produced in the eponymous city’s concrete jungle back in 1981. It’s a track that had all the potential to propel dance music forward: Relentless drum computer beats that predate techno – and even Chicago house – by years. A minimalistic synth hook that sounds more futuristic than any cutting edge dance record available at the time. And brilliantly overdubbed chants (taken from a 1970 The Last Poets album), which anticipated sample culture and should have made this an anthem.

Yet, it never happened. ‘New York, New York’ only appeared on an obscure compilation titled ‘The Pulse Of New York’ in 1983 that went largely unnoticed. It has brought its two producers, Dennis Kelley and Bruce Grant neither fame nor fortune. Kelley went on to produce recordings by artists such as Mike Ladd, while Grant, who passed away in 2009, remained a brilliant bed-room tinkerer, whose experimental tape manipulations drew praise from hip-hop artists like El-P and even prompted a New York Times portrait (titled “The Hip Hop Man”) in 1997.
‘New York, New York’ is accompanied by two more unreleased DeeKay Jones tracks from the same era: ‘Hirisaki’ showcases Bruce Grant’s work with tape recorders playing at varying speeds over a slow, Man Parrish-style electro beat, and the equally daring ‘Feel It In Your Gut’, which has Grant spinning bird-call recordings on a turntable by hand over a free-jazz saxophone.

Who would be better suited to pay homage to the pairs under-appreciated genius than NYC’s favourite adopted son, Andy Butler a.k.a. Hercules & Love Affair who is teaming up with his Viennese buddies Ha-Ze Factory. Staying true to the original track’s feel and rhythm, his remix transports ‘New York, New York’s rarely exploited floor-filler qualities into the year 2013, opening a time-distorting worm hole between Shaddock’s alternate universe and the one we strut our stuff in.

***Free Download***
“Hey You! (Shake Edit)”
(“Hey You!” spliced with “Shake” by 60′s garage group The Shadows Of Knight)

New York’s Ursula 1000 sets his time machine towards primitive garage punk for his new E.P., “FUZZ!”

Drenched in snarling fuzz guitars, savage drums and spooky organs, this new collection of tracks unleashes his technicolor take on this sound. A pinch of the old and a drop of the new, creating a brand new monster! Inspired by the classics like Count Five, The Sonics and the Nuggets and Back To The Grave collections to revivalists like The Gruesomes, Gravedigger V and The Dukes of Stratosphear, Ursula 1000 takes in this obsession and flips it for a new generation.

“FUZZ” features the inimitable Fred Schneider from The B-52s on the opening song, “Hey You!” Fred and his band paved the way of mixing b-movie surf trashiness and new
wave as does Ursula with his blending vintage grooves with modern electronica, thus making the pairing a no-brainer. This is not pastiche but a re-invention!

Ursula 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums (four artists albums and two DJ mixed CDs) and live/radio mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk, electro, go go and sleazy glam rock. You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier.

You can find him traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residencies at Trophy Bar and The Commodore. For a more obscure selection of songs that make him tick, check out his radio show, Guilty Pleasures on http://www.BrooklynRadio.com

FUZZ is released October 5 (digital) / October 19 (physical) on ESL Music
